10 non-alcoholic sleep drinks to try right now
Here are some of the new sleep drinks and sleep waters that are said to best aid sleepiness, including teas, herbals, sleep shots, and melatonin and magnesium infused beverages.
Magnesium is often present in sleeping pills, and Pepsi decided to use it – along with L-theanine – in its new sleep aid drink, Driftwell. Both of these minerals are known to advance sleep and reduce anxiety.
Pepsi’s goal in launching this “enhanced water beverage” is to eliminate restlessness, making it easier to fall asleep and stay asleep. Driftwell became available in the U.S. in December 2020 in blackberry raspberry flavor. The water is not carbonated, and it has no calories or sugar. One full can should be consumed approximately thirty minutes before bedtime.

5. Neuro SLEEP
In online reviews, users say that they like neuroSLEEP because it enhances the quality of their sleep as well as their ability to perform well throughout the day. Given the trends in the world of health and “superfoods”, it is notable that neuroSLEEP contains the extracts of several “super fruits” like pomegranate, acai, and blueberry.
It also comes in three flavors: mellow mango, peach apricot, and tangerine dream. It’s helpful that these drinks taste good, because the suggested dose requires consuming about the same amount as a standard plastic water bottle. So it can take a while to finish! Nonetheless, customers report being able to fall asleep very quickly.
BUY NOW: $25.95 for a 12-pack.
6. Liquid I.V. Drink Mix
Liquid I.V. Drink Mix stands out from others because it utilizes cellular transport technology, which enables the body to absorb water. Or in this case, to absorb the sleep drink ingredients into the bloodstream. As such, the brand says that its users are able to fall asleep faster.
Coming in blueberry lavender; lemon lime; and flavor, the powder should be mixed into a cup of water (or a water bottle) and consumed thirty minutes before bed. Liquid I.V. also donates a serving of their mix to a person in need around the world!
